Apple issues

No real surprises to my mate @gavincarr, but recently I’ve been having issues with the software Apple has recently released.  The list is as follows:-

  * ios 6.1.3 on iphone 4S drains battery more quickly than previous versions. More details [here](http://www.techradar.com/au/news/phone-and-communications/mobile-phones/ios-6-1-3-battery-drain-fix-needed-for-iphone-owners-1141201)
  * ios 6.1.3 on ipad, browsing seems to be considerably slower, and app updates even get retry prompts - this is new, I know we have a slow internet connection but this is unusual.
  * OS X 10.8.3 - parental controls are truly, truly broken.  Even removing a user's parental controls, still leaves them in place. The issue here is that the user with parental controls with web restrictions is unable to connect to the Internet using any browser.  More details can be found in this [Forbes article](http://www.forbes.com/sites/joshuagans/2012/10/03/first-there-was-apples-mapgate-now-welcome-parentgate/).
  * OS X 10.8.3 - on macbook air 2010, when it resumes from suspend the screen is all wobbly from the graphics card being in the wrong state.  Only solution is to reboot.  It looks like I'm not the only one, more details [here](https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4931157?start=0&tstart=0).

Now this is unusual for Apple.  I have had issues in the past but never so many and never with the loss of functionality the parental controls bug causes. It is obvious that some of the recent releases have not been properly tested.

As an update: I tried to send my feedback at http://www.apple.com/feedback/macosx.html but using Chrome or Safari the feedback button fails to work!!!
